Sports briefs: Jones gives back medals

Disgraced sprinter Marion Jones returned the five medals she won at the 2000 Sydney Olympics and accepted a two-year ban in a sport from which she has retired. Jones agreed to forfeit all results since Sept. 1, 2000, following her admission last week that she used performance-enhancing drugs. Her three golds and two bronzes were turned over to U.S. Olympic Committee and U.S. Anti-Doping Agency officials.
